San Francisco, Oakland, and Greenbrae, CA


I decided this time, since I am a Bay Area resident, I would explore the photo presentation a bit differently. I will go various everyday places and just take photos. I will also suggest tourist attractions based on local hangout me and my best bud frequent, as well as the many restaurants we frequent as the foodies we are! Some of the photos taken are from both of our surgeries as we are also surgery buddies! I believe this will aide those coming from other areas in finding entertainment, lodging, food, and more!

Pictures are ongoing so check back often, as I said I live here so I take photos almost every day! Also if you want to see something in particular email me and I’ll check it and take pictures in advance for you!

Hope you enjoy!

    Where do you recommend staying?

    • toyneboi says:

      This would be based on your budget. If you can stay in East bay do so. Staying in San Francisco is totally unfeasible for most as prices for a month can easily run you 3500 and that’s at a cheaper motel. Also airBnB.com or VRBO.com you may find something there. I use booking.com for alot of my traveling that may help you as well. But moral of the story the closer to San Fran the higher prices you will have to pay.
